Re: Latin translation...

Have you looked at this page? I know next to nothing about the land of codiprogrammathingies, but it still wasn't too hard to download.

Re: Latin translation...

The .po files are where the translations are stored, which means you have to download the files to work on the translations (or at least that's the easiest way). To do that you need an application to open them. We use "Poedit", so then it's just a matter of typing out translated text side by side th...

Re: Latin translation...

Yes, it is being worked on by, although Aethaeryn is off exploring the land of GSoC. We're just too fabulous to bother to do anything for 1.8, only 1.9 — even then we've progressed more than what the 1.9 translation statistics say.

This should explain all, including how to get involved.

Re: unit^gold

It is indeed for the unit cost. Gold you can translate as being used as a "currency", so maybe there would be a way of avoiding the problem by treating it like one with a mass noun or something. Mr. Wikipedia tells me that when the euro was adapted for Irish it was made to ignore the normal rules fo...

Re: what is saurians?

Saurians are unique to Wesnoth, derived from a Greek word for lizard. It would be better to find an alternative to 'dragon' for drakes though, since dragons and drakes are different. Drakes are dragons that are not fully developed because of their environment etc. So in Latin for example we called t...

Re: Re-creating the map to hi-res?

That marsh is a pretty recent addition, possibly due to a misinterpretation of EI. (according to Turin, Mal-Ravanal *created* the swamp he had his HQ in, which reverted to being a desert afterwards) If this is true, what is the swamp doing on the main map anyway instead of just EI? Anyhow, a swamp ...

Re: Latin translation request

The best way would be to say Hirandel writes (Latin uses the present tense) that blah blah blah, but 'that' can't be expressed if you're mixing up languages. The alternative blah blah blah thus writes Hirandel is inelegant in Latin. So the best alternative is a genitive formation, but the title woul...

Re: Ancient Lich Development

Malifor, Ro'Arthian, Jevyan, Muff Argulak (TRoW, no dialogue), Mal Ravanal, Mal Keshar and Mal M'Brin. I think that's all of them, having just checked, and Mal M'Brin appears as a plain old Lich in the Bandit branch, so he's not very 'ancient'.

Unique sprites are... nearly not impossible. :Awesome:

So it's nothing to do with Caesars, Kaisers and Tsars then? ;)

Personally I think the tree is best left as it is, since someone - Elvish Hunter better reflects their forum rank.
